About CBM Partners

Delivering Condition Monitoring and Reliability Centred Lubrication...


Our experts bring together latest technology and methods in Condition Monitoring and Reliability Centred Lubrication to help improve the reliability and productivity of our client’s operations.

Condition Monitoring tailored to your needs

We help you define and run your own monitoring program, deliver the on-site services for you or a provide a hybrid solution where our analysts support your team only as needed.

We get the foundations right;
1. Trained personnel
2. CM Schedules that ensure detection of faults before they become failures
3. Effective technique implementation: ultrasound, vibration analysis, oil analysis, thermography and visual inspection.
4. Data reading point consistency
5. Schedule compliance monitoring

Communication is critical; “finds” are shared with team members and the maintenance team is fully involved and engaged!

Experts in fixed/online condition monitoring

“There are a lot of monitoring equipment suppliers out there but very few organisations with as much experience as CBM Partners in specifying, installing and running them!”.

The increasingly lower cost of modern fixed monitoring systems mean that more machines can be monitored online than before. Benefits include reducing the reliance on people, being able to collect many more readings, automatic fault alarms and the ability to carry out remote analysis.

Our experts will determine the best fixed-monitoring solutions for you; we quickly provide options for the best monitoring equipment and how to make sure any program is going to be effective, efficient and sustainable.

Independent & unbiased, but;

We prefer to work with a limited number of Condition Monitoring hardware/software providers where quality, price and support are the best in the world.

These currently include;

Sonotec. Ultrasound handheld devices and sensors

Erbessd-Instruments. Fixed and Handheld Vibration Analysis sensors and systems. Wireless sensors; vibration, temperature, speed and power (amps).

Hansford Sensors. Accelerometers and associated equipment.

Delivering Reliability Centred Lubrication

>60% of bearing failures are due to poor lubrication. We either help a client move to reliability centred lubrication through consultation & training or will deliver a total lubrication management service on-site.
Our lubrication technicians are qualified to at least ICML MLI and are passionate about lubrication.
An optimised lubrication program significantly improves compliance and machine reliability by;
– Ensuring lubrication schedule compliance
– Removing the risk of over & under lubrication
– Eliminating the risk of lubricant contamination
– Avoiding stock obsolescence
– Using the right lubrication at the right time…every time
